A Plague Tale: Innocence 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 5th Dec 2020

Our objective here is to enable us to explore what PC we could buy that can play A Plague Tale: Innocence, where we carefully find the right hardware components that can run A Plague Tale: Innocence and meet its gaming needs while also heavily factoring in today’s best hardware component prices. We will therefore be aiming to run this game confidently each time with ultra settings selected, getting its visuals from a 1080p resolution monitor screen. We will keep checking the prices every day, so that our hardware selections on this page are at the best price point and we will swap in and out whenever something else appears better value today.

We will be looking across a range of things to help evaluate this best gamer build. We will be looking across the range of best value for money components based on today’s prices. Something that can influence our peripheral selection is that the game is found in the Adventure, Stealth, Action genres, and this can sometimes sway some of the requirements of hardware we choose. Something else to consider is that A Plague Tale: Innocence would have been built on PC hardware from 2019 and shortly before this period. All interesting points for sure, but what we are really after is that we want to select components that best fit this game type but will also be today’s best value for money hardware of good enough quality to meet the game’s needs.
